White House: Defunding Planned Parenthood Would ‘Draw Presidential Veto’

During the White House press briefing today, press secretary Josh Earnest suggested that any congressional budget rider that would defund Planned Parenthood would “draw a presidential veto” from President Obama.

Earnest has stopped short of issuing an official veto threat for any legislation defunding Planned Parenthood from the podium until now.

“Certainly a rider that on a wholesale basis defunds Planned Parenthood, which is the proposal from some Republicans in the House, is certainly something that would draw a presidential veto,” he asserted.

He reminded reporters that Planned Parenthood was an organization that provided women more services than just abortion, including cancer screenings and birth control.

Earnest asserted that the Planned Parenthood videos did not prove “convincing or damning” against Planned Parenthood, and called into question their “authenticity.”
